Description

Portrait of 11272 Private Gilbert Williams who was born at Gonelie, NSW, and who enlisted in the 20th Reinforcements to the 3rd Light Horse Regiment on 3 April 1917. He was discharged at the Mitcham Camp, SA on 4 September 1917, "having been found medically unfit for further service (not due to misconduct)". (This quote is from his service file held at the National Archives of Australia). His family claim he was discharged because he was black.
